Code: BH/21/0845 Anti racism and white privilege (EVENT FULL)

Brighton & Hove City Council has made a commitment to becoming an anti-racist council.

As a predominantly white council we must recognise what we don’t know, what we don’t experience and see. We need to openly discuss the language we use and understand what different words mean to different people.

To support this, we want to educate staff on white privilege, language and structural racism, As a starting point, we are offering this training for staff.

This anti-racism session has been designed to:

  • support staff to strengthen their understanding of race equality and develop the knowledge and skills to identify and address racism in their workplace
  • Introduce participants to the main concepts of race equality, such as privilege and structural racism within a safe, open and reflective space


The course will be delivered by Lesley Aitcheson, from training company Ceruleanblu. For the last 19 years, Lesley has provided training to range of well-respected organisations.

  • To examine when, where and how a coaching style of leadership would be beneficial and identify own management/leadership style in relation to coaching
  • To develop coaching skills and understand coaching models and techniques to use in individual, groups/team coaching situations
